I believed that the new lxpanel2 will be at least more accessible than the old lxpanel.It tries to reuse standard gtk3 widgets whenever possible to utilize the accessibility support built into gtk. Accessibility does matters!When the new panel is ready for testing, I'll announce on the list and you can test to see if it works with orca. If not, we can fix it. :-)

hello i'm a blind user and have managed to get the LXDe desktop pretty accessible. i'v spoken with one of the maintainers for the pcmanfm file manager and they said that they were going to work on getting the file manager working better with the Orca screen reader. This is fantastic news and highly appreciated. I was hoping while this work is being done to the lxpanel. If taking a lookg at it to see if the panle could also be accessible to the Orca screen reader? This is the last hurddle for the LXDE desktop to be 100% accessible. Thanks for your time and help along with all of your work on LXDE.

Thanks, I just added the missing file.It's still in an early stage and it's not for production use.No configuration UI is available.Unfortunately, available options in the config file is not documented, yet.About the applet API, I'll write docs for it later.Currently I'm trying to simplify and refactor the applet API.The dynamic plugin part is also being improved now.So, after these things are finished and API is more stablized,I'll write some docs for applet development.It should be as easy to do as in the old lxpanel.Otherwise I consider it a bug.Cheers!

preparing a debian/ directory so we can add it the daily PPA, but I need
to be able to build it locally first :-)
Also, that would be nice to have an example of a C applet in the tree,
so C coders will not be scared with all this Vala code :-) Is there an
API documentation somewhere to write applet in C and Vala, with
reference to the old lxpanel API (this will help porting)? Or do we have
to read the source code ?
